Many benefits are possible from participating in counseling. Counseling can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. Counseling can help you find new ways to cope with stress, better manage anger, depression, and other emotional pressures. Get "unstuck" from past relationships and family issues--break old patterns and develop new ways of dealing with old issues. Heal old psychological wounds---repair damage from the past. Discover creative ways to problem-solve. Improve your self esteem and boost your self confidence. The overall result can be improved health and well being.

I utilize my training with a variety of clients, be they adult, adolescent or family utilizing diverse approaches for each unique struggle.
Perhaps your life isn't headed in the direction you had hoped for. Life can get difficult at times and counseling can truly make the difference for you. Seeking help is both a simple and courageous act that supports one's need for expression. There are times that we need to connect with someone; to feel heard, to feel respected and to be validated. The purpose of psychotherapy is to help you improve your life as you navigate the process of change so that life can be filled with greater possibilities for fulfillment and peace.

Going through a divorce, separation, affair, addiction and your family is struggling with life transitions? Is your child acting out or having a hard time adjusting to your family changes? Are you feeling increased anxiety, panic, fear, worry or depression or other seemingly debilitating emotions? It might be time to seek help from a licensed counselor.
Are you ready to see your life transform and find peace and happiness? YES! Perhaps you have read through 100s of therapist’s profiles and are not sure who is your best fit? We practice brief therapy, which means you will find yourself feeling better faster as long as you do the suggested work. Life can bring about changes quickly and our minds and bodies are not equipped to adjust to them as fast as those around us would like. We can help you adjust to these changes through strength based collaborative therapy and implementing lasting solutions to everyday challenges. We offer in person and telehealth appointments.

While I have experience with all ages and a number of behaviors and diagnoses, my main focus is working with clients and/or family who are struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder. I utilize DBT and EMDR, among other approaches, to help the client find a way to regulate their symptoms and utilize new ways of approaching issues. I believe in education about what is going on in the mind and body so the client can leave my office with information and skills that can be utilized on a daily basis in order to achieve real change.

You feel something off about your childhood but you can't quite put your finger on it, you experience emotional cut off from your parents that feels like your fault, and maybe felt you parented your parents growing up - having access to an unbiased and supportive resource to explore and understand can make a difference in how you relate to your family today.
You feel as though you are constantly under a microscope and everyone is judging. You're overly concerned with others' evaluation of you. You have been told not to be "so sensitive". It is almost impossible for you to be free from worry and just be in the moment. I can help you discover your strengths and embrace your true self. It helps to have someone outside your circle available to listen to your unique perspective. I want to help you explore ways to keep perfectionism and over-thinking from stealing your joy. Learn how becoming more self-compassionate calms your self-critic. You are not a problem to fix.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
